Tha Sun left tha place whar he be teaching and healing and went to the vicinity of Tyre, which be about a thirty mile hike. He entered a house and did not want anyone ter know it. Could be he simply wanted ter rest and reflect on all he done thus far. Or perhaps tha Sun be taking a short vacation. Ne’er ferget that on tha seventh day of Creation Skipper rested from all his work. This be an example fer us ter take a break from time ter time.
Still, tha Sun could not keep his location a secret. Soon as a Greek woman born in Syrian Phoenicia heard he be in tha vicinity, she burst in ter tha home and fell at his feet begging Skip’s Sun ter drive an unclean demon out of her daughter.
Tha Sun replied, “First let the children eat all they want, for it is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to the dogs.”
No doubt when tha Sun mentioned “children’s bread” he be speaking of tha words of Skipper and how folks ought not ter try and get by on bread alone, but by every word that Skipper speaks. Tha “children” he spake of be his own Hebrew brothers and sisters, fer them be who he first came fer. (John 1:11-13)
“Lord,” the woman replied, “even the dogs under the table eat the children’s crumbs.”
“For such a reply (faith),” tha Sun said, “you may go; the demon has left your daughter.”
Tha woman went home and found her child lying on the bed, and that vile demon gone.
Thar be two things we ought ter think on a wee little bit:
First, it seems thar be some things tha Sun kin not do. Fer example, John Mark tells us that tha Sun “could not keep his presence secret.” In other places we find tha Sun telling folks ter keep quiet about him, ’bout what he done, ’bout how he healed, but instead they run off and flap thar trap telling all who ‘ill listen ’bout what a wonderful thing he done fer ’em. Tha Sun kin do a great many things but he kin not or will not overrule tha will of folks. If folks get it in thar head ter disregard his orders tha Sun kin not stop ’em.
Second, tha Sun doth not need ter be present ter cast out demons. Demons obey tha Sun from afar and near. This ought ter comfort us, fer if tha Sun kin send demons packing with simply a word or thought, then when we pray fer him to cast out one or several demons from our loved ones, he kin do it.
If ya ‘ave family or friends possessed or oppressed by unclean demons, fall at tha feet of tha Sun and in prayer, beg him ter cast out such vile spirits. Then be prepared ter accept whatever table scraps ya receive with thanks and praise.
